Sketchy Shallow Run

Post by RiverBottomOutdoors » 12 Sep 2019, 12:49

Shallow, rocky, sketchy run to fish a stretch of river I've been wanting to hit for a couple of years. This run is pretty much the limit for my G3 and likely the last run I'll make on it. She's been a good boat, but I've reached the limits of its capability and there are waters worse than this that are calling my name.

Sounds like you're going to upgrade. What boats are you looking at?

Just a side note. I bought a 20 lb drift boat galvanized pyramid anchor and am really pleased with it. If you anchor in swift water a lot, you might give one a try.

I'm likely going to an inboard RockProof with UHMW. To slow my drift I use a drift chain. I have 3 4ft sections. It doesn't work on hard bottoms though. Where did you get your pyramid from?
